Producer KE Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green has big plans for Thangalaan. The period drama is mounted on a big scale under the direction of Pa.Ranjith. It's said that this film is a passion project for Ranjith and the producers are seemingly leaving no stone unturned to give this movie a massive reach. 

"Thangalaan is a world cinema. We want to dub it into a maximum number of languages. We have tied up with Netflix. We wanted to give it a wider reach," Gnanavel told Galatta Plus. 

Gnanavel noted that the goal of the filmmakers is to ensure that people from across different languages, cultures and parts of the world watch Thangalaan. Even though it's ambitious, it's not impossible. 

For example, director SS Rajamouli's latest movie RRR found a new lease of life when the film's Hindi version was released on Netflix. The film was discovered on the platform by audiences around the world, paving the way for the film's second round of releases in foreign countries. Thanks to Netflix, the RRR was a big hit in the US and the unprecedented popularity of the movie among the western audience also paved the way for its historic Oscar win.  


Thangalaan has Tamil superstar Vikram in the lead role. The first look of the film revealing Vikram's look made quite an impression on the movie fans. Vikram's rugged look with a thick beard and a unique hairstyle was a big hit. Ranjith is now busy shooting the film against the backdrop of Kolar gold fields

Besides Vikram, Thangalaan also stars Parvathy Thiruvothu, Malavika Mohanan and Harikrishnan. 

Gnanavel Raja is also bankrolling Suriya's costliest movie, which has been tentatively titled Suriya 42.
